When Satyavati, wife of Rishi Ruchik, exchanges with her mother, Queen Ratna, the magic potion for bearing a child, they change not just their childrens destiny, but also the history of mankind. Born of this mix-up is Vishwamitra, the son of a Kshatriya, with the qualities of a Brahmin. The duality in his life soon begins to show as he strives to become a Brahmarishi-the ultimate, the most powerful of all Gurus. Vishwamitra is the riveting story of a brave but stubborn, haughty yet compassionate, visionary king of Aryavarta who became one of the most well-known sages of all times. About the Author Dr. Vineet Aggarwal is a doctor by qualification, manager by profession and artist by temperament.
